I love to shoot both Formal wedding and Photojournalism wedding, but I slight prefer the second style because is when I can get very genuine pictures.
Usually, during the wedding reception, but also on location, I like to take myself out of the contest and start to take pictures without any directions to the bride and groom. Usually this is when I can get the most genuine photos, when people are unaware that the photographer is taking their picture, they express themselves genuinely with a better natural look.
That’s why I slightly prefer a Photojournalism approach to Wedding, sometimes the best way to make a reportage of this unique special day is to don’t try to influence it at all, just describe the events as they happen and describe with pictures all the feelings of that day. For sure, formal pictures are very important to, so I always discuss with the bride and the groom what is their favorite style before the Wedding.
In the gallery below, there are few picture from Justyna and Joseph Wedding, it was really a great day, rich of beautiful moments and feelings. The wedding ceremony was at the lovely Croydon Register Office and the reception at the Ruskin House.
